  • Revolution on Represent 107.3 FM. My name is Tarek

  • Now listeners you may remember not too long ago we had a spoken word artist by the name of Suli Breaks.

  • Came down dropped a live session and alot of you were excited about that

  • I was excited this morning when i opened up a package, had no idea what it was.

  • Opened it up, put it in the player, pressed play,and it totally blew me away,

  • it;s his brand new piece from his brand new "The Dormroom Ep".

  • Ima have to let spoken word do what it does best,

  • and let it speak for itself. Brand new Suli Breaks!!

  • Right now,

  • there is a kid finishing parents evening in a heated discussion with his mother.

  • Saying:

  • "Why does he have subject subjects he will never ever use in his life?"

  • And she will look at him blank eyed

  • stifle a sigh think for a second And then lie

  • She'll say something along the lines of,

  • "You know to get a good job you need a good degree and these subjects help you get a degree

  • ,we never had this opportunity when i was younger"

  • and he will reply.

  • but "You were young a long time ago weren't you mum?"

  • and she won't respond although what he implies makes perfect sense that societies needs

  • would have changed since she was 16.

  • But she will ignore him grip his hand more sternly and drag him to the car.

  • What she doesn't know,

  • is that,she didn't ignore him just to shut him up

  • She didn't lie because they are just returning him from parents evening

  • And an argument in the hallway would look bad on her resume.

  • She won't lie because she had just spent the last hour

  • convincing a stern face teacher that she ensure that her child studies more

  • at home.

  • NO! She will lie simply, because she does

  • know any better herself. Although all her adult life she has never used or applied,

  • Pythagoras Therom, Pathetic Fallacy, And still does not know, the value of "X"

  • She will rely society to tells her child who has one of the sharpest minds in the school,

  • is unfocused, hyperactive easily distracted and wayward.

  • Students!

  • How many equations, subjects, dates did you memorise just before an exam

  • never to use again

  • How many "A" grades did you get,

  • which were never aksed for when applying for a job?

  • How many times have you remembered something 5 mins after the teacher has said "Stop writing"

  • Only to

  • receive your results a month later to realise that you were only

  • 1 mark short of the top grade?

  • Does that mean remembering 5 mins earlier would have made you more qualified

  • for a particular job? Well, on an application form it would have.

  • We all

  • different ability,thought processes,experiences

  • and genes So why is a class full of individuals

  • tested by the same means? That means Cherrelle thinks she's dumb,because she couldn't do a couple sums,

  • And if this issue is not addressed properly

  • It then becomes a self fulfilling prophecy!

  • Then every school has the audacity to have policy on equality!

  • "Huh" the irony!!

  • Exams are society's methods of telling you what your worth

  • But, you can't let society can't tell you what you are. Because this is the same society,

  • that tells you, that abortion is wrong, but then looks down on teenage parents!

  • The same society, thats sells products to promote natural hair, looks and smooth complexion

  • with the model on the box, half photoshopped, has fake lashes and hair extensions. With pastors

  • that preach charity, but own private jets. Imams that preach against greed, but are all fat.

  • Parents that say they want "educated kids" bit constantly marvel at how rich Richard Branson is.

  • Governments, that preach peace, but endorse war. That say

  • they believe so much in the importance of higher education and further learning

  • and then why increase tuition fees every single year?!?

  • I believed Miss Jeffersoon when she took me into the office said that my exams would be

  • imperative to my success.

  • Because we were taught to always follow when Miss Jefferson Led.

  • Then I took Jefferson out of the equation,

  • learnt to think for myself

  • I realized, we were always taught to follow when misled.

  • "Huh" the irony.

  • Test us with tests, But the finals are never final,

  • because they never prepare us for the biggest test which is survival!

  • And what I suggest is fairly outlandish I don't except everyone to understand this.

  • Except for the kid that knows what it feels like to be Worth no more

  • Worth no more than that D or that A That you receive on results day. The ones whose best stories

  • Where never good enough for your English teacher. Because apparently you missed out

  • key literal techniques Did not follow the class plan,

  • And the language was too "informal" for

  • him to understand. But then he'd reference Hamlet, Macbeth

  • And you'd fight the urge to express your contempt

  • by partially clenching your fist with only your medius finger left protruding in the

  • middle of your hand,

  • And asking if he was aware that Shakespeare was known as the innovator of slang.

  • Or the kid at the back of the class who thinks,

  • Why I'm a studying something that doesn't fuel my drive?

  • But when confronted with a maths problem his eyes come alive!!

  • So this one is for my generation The ones that found what they were looking for on Google

  • the ones who followed their dreams on Twitter, pictured their future on Instagram,

  • accepted destiny on Facebook.This ones for my "failures" and "dropouts"

  • For my unemployed graduates. My shop assistants, cleaners and cashiers with bigger dreams!!

  • My world changers and dream chasers!!

  • Because purpose of "Why I hate school, but love education" was not

  • to initiate a world wide debate,

  • but to let them know that whether 72

  • or 88

  • 44 or 68.

  • We will not let an exam results decide our fate. Peace
